Archived – Box Product News


With the new iOS update you will see the following:

  • Restored support for high-definition video playback (HLS) on iOS 11. The Box app has fully supported HLS on iOS 10 since version 4.1.0 - it is now supported on both iOS 10 and iOS 11.
  • An updated PDF preview framework, resolving a couple of issues including a potential crash when viewing certain PDF documents.
  • The Box app will now fully use the Representations APIs for all thumbnails, previews and downloads. Previously, the Representations API was only used for thumbnails and HLS video in the Box iOS app. For more information on Representation APIs, learn more here.
  • Improved direct image uploading functionality while editing a Box Note. Images will no longer be altered on upload in this flow, for example Animated GIFs now remain animated after being added to a Box Note.
  • Please note that the iOS 4.3.3 EMM release was canceled due to a bug we discovered and this version includes a fix for that bug.
  • Additional bug fixes and stability improvements.
